 No No NO No! WHen I edit it, I go back to put something else in and it has gone back to whatever it was before i edited it in the first place.

Just a thought here as Ive seen this happen to a few people.

If you edit the css int in the css area at the very bottom it saves it to the css.

If you go back in later on and decide to make a change and you do so this time in the NORMAL edit area at the top and save it THERE  that area does not have the updates from your earlier edit in the css so you wind up with what is up top in that normal area PLUS your new change.     i.e. the area at the top does not get updated with any changes you made in the css edit area at the bottom.

This is why I use the css area at the bottom only

I know you can change things in the normal area.  For me I preferered when I started doing this to do so directly in the css, but that is just me.   I am afraid I dont know how to tell you to use only the normal editing part;  as I do not use it any longer.

Should you want to try it with the css ..  ummm it does take some research / some html knowledge / some css knowledge
 
I went thru the source code to find things so I would know where they are.
And, I did searchs at w3schools and using google for information when I was stuck on how to edit some areas in there; such as adding a background and different ways to do it.

I made this to show where some of the areas are..  i.e. windowbg, catbg, tborder etc.

Sibyl,  if I edit in the css such as replacing an image, it doesn't work.  In my case I was only replacing the background image.  SMF said he fixed it and it worked ok for a day and now is back to the same way before he tweaked it.

That was on server 3, with my testing account.  I don't think that it was intended that we repeat the processes over and over again to get them to work.

Paste the code exactly as you put it in for that section so I can see how you did it, k?

Ok, I was using this:

/* The main body of the entire forum. */
body
{
   color: #000000;   
                background-image: url(http://i137.photobucket.com/albums/q232/LaundryLady1947/Patriotic%20Themes/rose_cross_lg_wht_me.jpg);
   font-size: small;
   font-family: verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;
                margin: 1px;
                padding: 12px 30px 4px 30px;

It looks fine to me but try putting the following code in.
Before you do, where it says "background-color"  change the color code to one close to your background image color.

Also make sure to save it by clicking Modify Style at the very bottom.
If you go back in and make any edits in the top section (the normal edit section) and save it up there,  you may lose the changes you made earlier.   Ive not quite gotten those two areas to work well togeher and find (for myself) its better to stick to one, or the other.

Code: [Select]

/* The main body of the entire forum. */
body
{
        color:  #000000;
        background-color: #E6E6E6;
        background-image: url(http://i137.photobucket.com/albums/q232/LaundryLady1947/Patriotic%20Themes/rose_cross_lg_wht_me.jpg);
        font-size: small;
        font-family: verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;
        margin: 1px;
        padding: 12px 30px 4px 30px;
}
